and how about ectending the urban boundaries.
Look it is not hard to become a city
towns can declare themselves a city
in sligo and drogheda they have signs directing people to the city centre.
In Drogheda the council passed a motion declaring Drogheda a city.
They are now a city. They dont have a city council but all it is is when we put up a new sign we say city centre not town. What have we got to lose. Only to gain.
Take a look a this.
obviously castlebar wont get this much benefits but there will be some .
why not? just call a motion in the council and declare it a city. there is nothing to lose.
why cant we just do this.
Can any councillor give me a reason why not after looking at these links
